The ‘cash load at doorstep’ service is now available in India, allowing customers to swap cash for an Amazon Pay balance in the amount of Rs. 2000.
The Reserve Bank of India is eliminating Rs. 2,000 notes as part of the ‘Clean Note Policy,’ and they will cease to be legal currency as of September 30, 2023. Before the deadline, Rs. 2,000 notes may be exchanged at any bank or spent. The Rs. 2,000 bill is no longer accepted at many businesses. Thus, individuals have difficulty finding ways to spend their Rs 2000 notes.
Amazon has stated that the monthly limit for deposits to Amazon Pay accounts is 50,000 Indian Rupees.
Amazon Pay India’s Full-Time Director Vikas Bansal stated, “One of our unique offerings in India is the ability to top up your Amazon Pay balance with cash provided to delivery employees at your doorstep. This option is accessible to customers who have completed our Know Your Customer (KYC) process. By continuing to facilitate these kinds of streamlined solutions, we can help further stimulate the digital payments revolution in India, which is key to our purpose.
You’ll need to finish the Amazon app’s video KYC procedure before you can add Rs. 2,000 notes to your Amazon Pay balance. No more than 10 minutes should be spent on this. Next, use Amazon’s cash-on-delivery option to make a purchase. Provide Rs. 2,000 in cash to the Amazon delivery person when he comes. The courier will update your Amazon Pay account with the funds. The money will show up in your Amazon Pay balance shortly.
Amazon Pay balances may be used on any Amazon purchase, or a UPI handle can be set up for use in making payments to friends, shopping, and using mobile applications.
